I have got an other opinion about this.

I do not want to "waste" your time. - But I can imagine that I stress your
software development attention to some degree as I am publishing a significant
number of update suggestions according to a bit of static source code analysis.

The acceptance varies as usual.

I see also another option.

* Can the first three update steps from this small patch series be integrated
while the fourth needs further adjustments (where I went a bit too far)?

* Do you prefer to squash the last two update steps together?
